Yup, we're getting 91 F here today, they predict. I'm going to set the timer on the A/C so it should be on half an hour BEFORE I get home from work. Yesterday was nice and dry, at least, so if today isn't humid, I might survive.
How do you folks down south manage?!?
I have made the biggest MESS!
: Well, I know I need to get the closet in DS's room (formerly the guest room--therefore, closet of all odd items) emptied before the central air gets installed June 4-6. Yesterday, I decided that I *HAD* to start on that. Partly, because I'm trying to get at least a little bit started on preparing for Mom's arrival, and all the extra bedding lives in that closet.
So DS "helped" and we got it done to a point that ANYONE could remove what is left in a way that wouldn't bother me (say, if I were to have the baby before the install happens and need to direct someone by phone.) The only problem is, my upstairs hallway is FULL OF STUFF. AAAACK! Now, the big storage bags with the comforters in them just need to go up to the attic (DH's job.) The donations need to go downstairs (I took some, DH must carry some) and get itemized and boxed up and added to the pile to go. The only other major pile is all of my gift wrap, which always lived in that closet. I'm feeling like it is only fair to give DS "his" closet (finally!), but where do I store the gift wrap? To show how excessive I can get with stuff, I must confess to having one of those Rubbermaid "gift wrap storage" containers (tall thing, holds a dozen rolls or so?) plus about 5 cardboard filing-size boxes of flat paper, ribbons, bows, etc. It's too much, but I don't want to throw it out. I'm trying to work through what I have and just keep less in future... WHERE DO YOU STORE YOUR GIFT WRAP?
I know. That's a stupid problem to worry about.
I was just so proud of myself for getting it done last night, but then DH came home and I realized we're having some people over on Sunday and I've made my already chaotic (under kitchen-renovation) house even worse!
